Hello Gerry,

Regarding your question about RAW. Can you specify your use case?
In high level planning we'll consider supporting it in 21.02.

Hi,

One possible condition to get -ENOTSUP is if DevX is disabled on the NIC, Have you verified DevX is enabled  ?
Please check here :

enable DevX (required by Direct Rules and other features):
UCTX_EN=1
---

With higher log verbosity, you could check in the application initialization if mlx5 PMD returns"DevX is supported" to make sure.

Regards,
Erez
